Drawing from gospel greats such as Mahalia Jackson (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRVzOV5ZaLs&feature=related), Henry says that the message of gospel music is there is always tomorrow.

What does it mean when tears come? Sometimes when tears come gushing out, we have no idea why. St. Augustine believed that tears indicated a change.

Henry uses the story of the Stubborn Bear to help illustrate the closed heart. As liturgist, Rev. George "Skip" Herbert reads from Exodus 10.
